Keep Running, Stay Fit
Has your weight steadily increased over the last few years? Do you know that running can keep you fit and help you lose weight?
There are many types of running, some of which include the following:
Base runs: They are short-to-moderate length runs around 6 miles (10 km) and done at your natural pace.
Long runs: Longer versions of base runs done at the same pace but covers a greater distance of around 10–12 miles (15–20 km). They help to improve your overall fitness and endurance.
Hill repeats: Similar to interval runs but this time done uphill. They help train your running power and speed while improving stamina.
Recovery runs: This are slow runs done after harder runs like hill repeats to add extra distance to your overall run. Example, a 4-minute run at a comfortable pace after a harder run.
Progression runs: These style runs by starting slow and then finishing at a faster pace. With this style they build endurance, speed and reduce fatigue. For example, 5 miles (8 km) at a natural pace, then 1 mile (1.5 km) at a more fast pace.
When you want to lose weight you are required you to burn more calories than you consume, and exercise can help you do so.
Running is a great type of exercise, it burns more calories than most other types of exercise because it requires many different muscles to work hard together.
